Can I allow multiple attempts?

Yes! When creating an assignment, you’ll have the option to select how many attempts students have to complete that assignment for the best grade possible.

Setting the number of attempts

    1. Begin the process of creating a new assignment.
    2. In the assignment creation window, under “Attempts,” use the drop-down menu to select the number of times students can do an assignment.
    3. When you’ve finished choosing all of the assignment settings, click the “Assign” button.

You’ll see the number of attempts a student took to submit the assignment under “Attempts” in the assignment progress view.

Keep in mind that we'll only save the responses from students' final attempts!

Adding attempts

If you’d like a student to have another attempt at an assignment after submitting it:

    1. Choose their class from the list under “My Classes” in the menu on the left-hand side of your page.
    2. Select the assignment in question.
    3. Click on the student’s name from the “Students” tab.
    4. Click the “Make student retry” button on the right, above the list of questions.

What does this look like for students?

When students finish an assignment with multiple-choice questions, they’ll have the option to go back and redo any questions they’ve answered incorrectly or revise any ungraded answers to open-ended questions. To do so, they’ll click the “Retry” button when prompted. If they don’t wish to use any additional attempts, they’ll click the “Submit” button to submit the assignment.

Students can either rewatch the entire video or skip ahead to questions they’ve answered incorrectly to revise their answer choices.

Students will not see an indication of which multiple-choice answer options are correct unless they are on their last attempt. If you have set only one attempt, that one attempt will count as their last.

Note: This feature is not available for assignments with no embedded questions or only open-ended questions.
